Ingredient Checklist

Directions

Instructions Checklist
  • Preheat oven to 350°F. Prepare Pastry for Single-Crust Pie. On a lightly floured surface, use your hands to slightly flatten pastry. Using a rolling pin, roll pastry from center to edge into a circle about 12 inches in diameter. Wrap pastry circle around rolling pin; unroll into a 9-inch pie plate. Ease pastry into pie plate without stretching it. Trim pastry to 1/2 inch beyond edge of pie plate. Fold under extra pastry even with the plate's edge. Crimp edge as desired. Do not prick pastry.

  • Pour filling into pastry shell. To prevent overbrowning, cover edge of pie with foil. Bake for 25 minutes. Remove foil. Bake for 20 to 25 minutes more or until filling is puffed and appears set (center will jiggle just a little). Cool on a wire rack. Cover and chill within 2 hours. Serve with Maple-Cinnamon Whipped Cream.
